The making of a counter culture; reflections on the technocratic society and its youthful opposition by Theodore Roszak( Book )

113 editions published between 1958 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it was first published, this book captured a huge audience of Vietnam War protesters, dropouts, and rebels--as well as their baffled elders. The author found common ground between 1960s student radicals and hippie dropouts in their mutual rejection of what he calls the technocracy--the regime of corporate and technological expertise that dominates industrial society. He traces the intellectual underpinnings of the two groups in the writings of Herbert Marcuse, Norman O. Brown, Allen Ginsberg, and Paul Goodman

An examination of the exaggerated claims made for computers and artificial intelligence.

The voice of the earth by Theodore Roszak( Book )

25 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his latest book Theodore Roszak searches for the environmental dimensions of sanity where conventional psychology leaves off: at the threshold of the nonhuman world. He writes: "The sanity that binds us to one another in society is not necessarily the sanity that bonds us companionably to the creatures with whom we share the Earth. If we could assume the viewpoint of nonhuman nature, what passes for sane behavior in our social affairs might seem madness. But as the prevailing Reality Principle would have it, nothing could be greater madness than to believe that beast and plant, mountain and river have a 'point of view.'" The Voice of the Earth seeks to bridge this centuries-old split between the psychological and the ecological. A true "ecopsychology," Roszak insists, sees the needs of the planet and the needs of the person as a continuum. In a sense that weaves science and psychiatry, poetry and politics together, he shows that the ecological priorities of the biosphere are coming to be expressed through our most private emotional and spiritual travail. The Earth's cry for rescue from the punishing weight of the industrial system we have created is our own cry for a scale and quality of life that will free us to become the whole and healthy person that more and more members of our species are coming to believe we were born to be
Ecopsychology--restoring the earth, healing the mind( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecopsychology represents an attempt to find ecology within the context of human psychology and, in turn, to find human psychology in the context of ecology. The feelings of isolation and dysfunction that are so pervasive today have at their root a denial of our essential connection to nature and the non-human world. To heal, we must find our way back home

17 editions published between 1975 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cult of information : a neo-Luddite treatise on high tech, artificial intelligence, and the true art of thinking by Theodore Roszak( Book )

13 editions published between 1986 and 1994 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we devote ever-increasing resources to providing, or prohibiting, access to information via computer, Theodore Roszak reminds us that voluminous information does not necessarily lead to sound thinking. "Data glut" obscures basic questions of justice and purpose and may even hinder rather than enhance our productivity. In this revised and updated edition of The Cult of Information, Roszak reviews the disruptive role the computer has come to play in international finance and the way in which "edutainment" software and computer games degrade the literacy of children. At the same time, he finds hopeful new ways in which the library and free citizens' access to the Internet and the national data-highway can turn computer technology into a democratic and liberating force. Roszak's examination of the place of computer technology in our culture is essential reading for all those who use computers, who are intimidated by computers, or who are concerned with the appropriate role of computers in the education of our children. --Publisher description
America the wise : the longevity revolution and the true wealth of nations by Theodore Roszak( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Far from being an unaffordable burden, Roszak argues, longevity is the true wealth of nations. He envisions the ability to prolong productive and fulfilling lives as a paramount historical achievement rather than a recipe for fiscal disaster. The longevity revolution will force Americans to rethink their attitudes toward death and life, competition and cooperation, wealth and well-being. America the Wise is the first book to offer a comprehensive examination of our changing demographic patterns and to find in them the seeds of a new society based not on the survival of the fittest but on wisdom, compassion, and the survival of the gentlest. Its predictions will ignite a nationwide debate that promises to transform our most fundamental ethical and cultural values as well as our economic and political priorities

Nobody could have imagined that information technology, the towering colossus that dominates our world, would meet its match in an innocent, six-year-old girl named Daphne.

As the crisis deepens, powers darker and more mysterious than modern science can understand must be invoked in order to defend a threatened humanity

The gendered atom : reflections on the sexual psychology of science by Theodore Roszak( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern scientists, from the age of Galileo and Newton, have subjected nature - Mother Earth - to a typically masculine drive to control and exploit. Deftly drawing on insights from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - the classic tale of science gone mad - and from the new field of feminist psychology, the author shows how centuries of male domination have distorted not only scientific research and development, but also our relationship to one another and to the natural world."--BOOK JACKET. "The Gendered Atom envisions a new, gender-free science that lies beyond sexual politics, respects our community with nature, and promises a healthier, more sustainable relationship between ourselves and the world we inhabit."--Jacket
